For a few seasons now, voluminous silhouettes have been dominating the runways, especially in the outerwear category. Many editors are calling for, “The bigger the better,” for coats and we couldn’t agree more. Oversized coats, whether wool or a trench, plays easily into the minimalist aesthetic, as it becomes the statement piece of your outfit. There are many different looks that can come out of a cocooning overcoat such as chic and fashion forward, or laid-back and effortless.
Oversized coats are obviously very practical for the winter as they actually give you room to layer and experiment with different looks. The shapeless look can be intimidating for some but it can still be flattering! For oversize newbies, we recommend styling with a crop top for that tiny hint of skin will bring the sexy back. A big statement coat with a dress can upgrade the look by adding drama and glamour. Even something simple like jeans, sneakers and a textured jumper can be elevated with an oversized coat for a smart-casual weekend look.
At Belle & Bloom, we carry many oversized coats and we happy to help you style it into your wardrobe. Be sure to check the sizing recommendations on the product page and check out our Instagram for more ideas.
